{My Recipes} Crockpot Brisket & Baked Corn

Honestly, I have never thought about putting ears of corn in my oven. Not once. But it's actually a genius idea. I've done corn on my stovetop grill, on our outdoor gas grill and even sawed off the kernels then sauteed them in a pan with butter and rosemary. Putting them in the oven, however, was a tasty new way to prepare the ol' cobs and I'm now officially a fan. Thanks for the inspiration, Pinterest.

And of course baked corn goes great with crockpot brisket. Which was my first brisket to make ever, by the way. I adapted it from this recipe. It was edible and delicious, so I'm counting this dinner as a double whammy accomplishment for all the "newness" involved. Yum yum.

Crockpot Brisket
2 pound brisket, most of fat removed
Worcestershire sauce
1 regular size bottle BBQ sauce
1 onions, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons chile powder
1 teaspoons salt (I used sea salt)
1 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon Lawry's seasoning salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper

Combine all the dry spices to create a rub and vigorously apply it to both sides of the brisket, really rubbing it into the meat. Place meat in crockpot and add onions, garlic and water as well as a few glugs of worcestershire. Cook on low for about six hours, check meat at around 4 hours. Turn down to warm if it's starting to cook through already. 



Remove meat from crockpot when it's done and shred with two forks then return to crock pot and add BBQ sauce, stirring well and warming through.


The brisket worked out great for a taco bar we did for dinner one night, complete with corn tortillas, homemade guacamole and all the trimmings!

Baked Corn
Corn on the cob, 6-10 ears
Butter
Rosemary
Sea Salt
Pepper

Pre-heat oven to 400F. Shuck and wash corn thoroughly then place on baking sheet and season very liberally with rosemary, sea salt and pepper. Place a pat of butter on top of each ear and put in the oven to bake for 45-60 minutes, until corn starts to brown and roast.

  1. Hmmm, I'm not a huge fan of rosemary, but oven roasting corn sounds like an amazing idea, since I pretty much like any veggie roasted.

    1. I am too! Just leave out the rosemary or use some other herb you like!
